Honolulu Police Community Foundation's 11th Annual Fundraiser Event

Special Recognition Event, Featuring and Honoring
Honolulu Police Department’s Reserve Police Officers
Friday, May 18, 2018
Sheraton Waikiki Resort & Hotel

We proudly will be honoring the Honolulu Police Department’s Reserve Police Officers for their outstanding service to our community for the past 76 years.  The reserve officer program was started in 1941 by then Chief William Gabrielson and the Honolulu Police Commission.  For HPD’s Reserve Officers serving their community is its own reward and they consider it the highest level of community service. These dedicated volunteer Police Officers take on noteworthy responsibilities and encounter the same dangers as HPD’s full-time officers.  Reserve Officers have the same police powers, go through the same training, background checks and physical testing as their full-time colleagues. Reserves Officers are used for various duties, including traffic control, patrol, undercover work, juvenile services and desk work. They are required to volunteer at least five hours a week, although many put in more hours. The reserve program is important to HPD as it saves the department monies that can be used for other law enforcement purposes.

This annual event is a fundraiser for the foundation to support our mission to provide scholarships for higher education, community service projects helping our seniors, and equipment for the Honolulu Police Department that could not be obtained through the normal budget process.

"The support of our community and businesses helps the foundation to fulfill its mission in fostering the relationships between the Honolulu Police Department and the community; strengthening the services, organization, and performance of the Honolulu Police Department for the benefit of all persons residing in the City and County of Honolulu; and advancing the education of our youth and the community."
